SEP sesam Release 4.0

This article describes release notes for SEP Sesam version 4.0.1 and 4.0.2. The release notes for version 4.0.3 are described under Release Notes 4.0.3!

Latest Version

Important changes

Attention: Important Changes

Increased size of Windows System State backup

SEP Sesam system_state backup follows the new requirements from Microsoft. As a result the saveset size of System State is a multiple of older System_State backup for Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 [R2] or Windows 7. A typical value is about 12 GB.

Changed Sesam DB column names

All German column names are renamed. If you wrote your own scripts which referenced to the Sesam database it can be necessary to adopt your scripts with the new column names after the Sesam server update. A table with all changes can be found here.

'\' has to be doubled in command events

Until version 3.6 command events could be entered by using '/' or '\' as path separator on Windows. To allow the use of '\' as escape character all '\' have to be replaced by '\\' or use '/' on Windows too.

Linux kits are linked against shared libraries provided by OS.

Some more dependencies packages are required. All of them will be resolved by package manager automatically.

Windows File System Backups make use of Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).

In order to assure files accessed by other processes are backed up correctly, SEP Sesam will make use of the Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service. This option is enabled for newly created backup tasks automatically. It is highly recommended that customers which update from older versions check the existing backup tasks to make use of this feature as well!

Known Issues

Known Issues
System_State NTDS Restore on Windows 2003
The NTDS (Active Directory Domain Services) restore on Windows 2003 is only fulfilled with complete restore not with selective restore.
Support for Exchange 2007 Single Email Restore
In version the new feature 'Exchange 2007 Single Email Restore' is only supported on Windows 2008 R2. Support on Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 will be achieved in next Release. A Mailbox Database restore is supported in any case.
Exchange 2007 Single Email Restore with error MTF_BAD_ARCHIVE
If the restore of Exchange 2007 'Single Email' or 'Mailbox Folder' ends with failure 'MTF_BAD_ARCHIVE' this may not be an error. In all known cases the selected items are restored successfully.
Restore fails with Empty select list - restore will be canceled., if top-level directory is selected in restore wizard.
WORKAROUND: Select Complete restore of saveset in saveset selection list tab.
(FIXED in Saveset size of older backups is '0' in restore wizard
FIX: Update results.data_size in database.
 sm_db "update results set data_size=blocks*1024 where data_size is null and blocks is not null"
Exclude list for NSS file systems couldn’t be created by client browser
WORKAROUND: Enter manually
Moved folders are not saved during DIFF or INCR backups
Sesam uses time stamp information of file to decide, if it has to be saved during DIFF/INCR backup. Because this information is not changed during a move operation, files will be saved until next full backup
(FIXED in Calendar sheet can only be displayed until 12/31/2010
FIX: Install SEP sesam GUI service pack -->
(FIXED in Date of last full backup is not correctly shown in GUI
FIX: Install SEP sesam GUI service pack -->
(FIXED in Archive adjustment is mandatory before start of backup or media init
In version 4.0.1.x < a serious problem was found which could lead to an accidental media initialization if the content of the media library was changed without executing an archive adjustment! SEP strongly recommends an archive adjustment after every change of the content of the media library to avoid this problem.
Downgrade of SEP sesam version is not possible
No fix available
(FIXED in Executable bit is not set for sm_notify, sm_disaster and sm_alarm
FIX: Execute chmod 750 <file name> manually.
  chmod 750 /opt/sesam/bin/sesam/sm_notify
(FIXED in sm_notify doesn't send e-mail, with error "\
/var/opt/sesam/var/prot/<day_protocol>.prtCTRLD_EXIT_CODE: 000 (No such file or directory)" (CTRLD_EXIT_CODE).
FIX: Install SEP sesam GUI service pack -->
(FIXED in sbc on Linux cores with double free corruption saving extended attributes
Allocated buffer size for holding extended attributes is only 1024 bytes.
(FIXED in Loader does not transport tape back into slot, because option 'autounload=n was ignored by sm_loader
FIX: Download patch from and replace sm_loader executable in <sesam-root>/bin/sesam of Sesam server.
Command events without file extension end with exit code 2 on Windows clients
FIX: Define command with file extension: my_command -> my_command.cmd
By default Microsoft installs Windows Powershell with permission Restricted. This setting just allows to execute commands in Powershell, but no scripts.

This can be changed with following command in Powershell:

  • Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

New Features


Status screens

  • more result views can be saved and used
  • more filters (date, task, task type...)
  • better sorting
  • displayed columns can be changed
  • incremental search
  • more context menu entries, like Start backup, Restart for failed backups

Window Manager

Complete redesign of window management

  • Every screen can be placed everywhere (docking/floating)
  • Different layouts can be saved
  • All trees can be collapsed/expanded
  • Incremental search in tree
Configuration of current messages

Configuration of current messages (interval and cyclic) is saved by Layout Manager


  • Every database change request is logged in Sesam main log
  • Errors and warnings are shown with different colors in Sesam main and backup logs
  • Send as mail button in backup log screen
  • Send of backup trace log and main log with backup log


Copy of a saveset can be directly started from the results screen.

Task type specific restore options

Many restore options like recover, as path... will be offered according to the task type. So no Recover after restore for NetWare file system restore. Also external backup, like Oracle, won't be shown in restore wizard, except explicitly requested.

  • Restore as dump for all backups
  • Restore as path for all non raw backups


  • Successfully restarted backups aren't offered in the Restart backups dialog any more.
  • Optimized RMI server access to speed up GUI access over slow network connections


Windows Server 2008 R2

Sesam Server runs on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2, including support of Program Files as installation path.

Windows 7

Sesam Server runs on Windows 7, including support of Program Files as installation path.


A major rewrite to support MS VSS. MS changes backup API of almost all of their products to VSS. This makes some backups easier to handle, but many existing common SBC functions, like exclude, relocation, overwrite are affected.

It is not longer necessary to set the VSS snapshot with Backup Task property 'Save options' value '-o vss'. Now the Windows Backup Task has a special flag 'Backup with VSS'.

If a new Backup Task is created and the client platform is Windows then the flag is set according to the operating system:

Windows NT and Windows 2000
Flag is not set and not visible.
Windows XP
Flag is not set (under XP only one set (with some volumes) is allowed!).
Windows 2003 and newer
Flag is set.

Note: The old save option '-o vss' is still usable to start a VSS backup but should be substituted by the 'Backup with VSS' flag to avoid confusion if the flag is not set but the option '-o vss' is set.

System_State Backup

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 contain new and changed features that backup application must be aware of.

See MSDN document Application Compatibility for Backup and Restore for further details.

Attention System_State Size Increased

SEP Sesam system_state backup is following the new requirements - especially storing data of system state relevant VSS Writers. As a result the amount of the System_State saveset size is a multiple of the size of the older System_State backup for Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 [R2] or Windows 7.

Furthermore Microsoft recommends that the so called Critical Volumes (Operating system partition and other partition storing OS related information) should be backed up together with system state on Vista and Windows Server 2008. Therefore regular backups with VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) for all Critical Volumes must be scheduled.

Interfaces with PowerShell Scripts

The use of Microsoft Windows PowerShell scripts (*.ps1) is possible. So instead of Windows command scripts (*.cmd) the more powerful Microsoft Windows PowerShell command line shell and scripting language is usable. PS1 templates for sm_notify, sm_alarm, sm_disaster, sbc_pre, sbc_post, sbc_restore_pre and sbc_restore_post are distributed with version 4.0.

Restore Option '-o skip_acl'

The new SBC restore option '-o skip_acl' allows to run a restore without applying the ACL to the files. With this option the newly created files are owned by the SYSTEM user.

Media and Drives

Tandberg RDX Drives

Tandberg RDX drives are fully supported by Sesam now.

Media handling

A major rewrite of Sesam GET_VOLUME function. This function is responsible for loading correct medium for backup and restore. In case of backup or initializations, it's also responsible for using SPARE and EMPTY media, if allowed.

  • Sesam handles media and hardware errors better now.
  • No error messages in Sesam main log during loading of media

DISK Change

Complete redesign of drive type DISK_CHANGE. OS specific mount, umount and eject commands, can be entered in Drive properties dialog. Commands are preset with reasonable values for Linux. (Windows missing at the moment @FO/EE). Commonly external disks have to get the same device name every time to be mounted correctly. SEP offers a HowTo for this. (@MA/FO Link ??)

DISK Loader

New device type DISK_LOAD. Sesam handles several disks like tapes in a robot. If a media becomes full, backups write to the next one. In opposite to current DISK_HARD implementation, disk can be changed for offline archive. After changing disks manually, an archive adjustment has to be done.

Media timeout

For single tape drive:

  • Get volume operation will stop after media timeout has been reached (in min).
  • If automatic unload is disabled, then tape is no ejected, if another one is requested. Useful together with media timeout set: Backups will run at night, even if another tape was requested for a restore, but no one has changed it.

Media actions

Archive adjustment

Archive adjustment can be scheduled like media init now.

Media readcheck

  • Consistence check of savesets between Sesam DB and medium
  • Check of tape format
  • Media read check can be forced (GUI missing in BETA version)
  • More than one media can be selected to be checked (GUI missing in BETA version)
  • Real saveset verify is still missing

Saveset encryption

If saveset encryption for a task is set, then password can be saved into results table or not. If not set in results, then password will be asked for in case of starting a restore via restore wizard.

Linux extended attributes

sbc for Linux supports backup and restore of extended attributes. NSS volumes can also expose trustee information as Extended Attributes, so they can be saved without sbc_smdr. SE Linux uses EA too for saving information.

Standard exclude list

A standard backup exclude list for Windows and Unix can be set in sm.ini


A default exclude list will be added during installation on Windows. In version 4.x values will be set even in case of an update from a 3.x version but not if updating form a 4.x version.


Ignore size change list

A list of files can be set in sm.ini sbc-Unix will not complain about size change during backup (for example /var/log/messages).


sbc-Unix will not report files deleted between find and save operation as warning, if they match one of these patterns.


  • Sesam restore logs are now in a separate sub directory gv_rw_prot:/restore
  • New log file <sesam day>.prt.err including all Sesam error messages.
  • Sesam status and day logs will never be deleted.


The execution logs of interface programs sm_alarm, sm_disaster and sm_notify are now stored in a particular directory gv_rw_prot_notification = .../var/prot/notification and accessible via GUI 'Logging > Interfaces > Alarm/Disaster/Notify'.

Sesam Database

All German column names are renamed. If you wrote your own scripts which referenced to the Sesam database it can be necessary to adopt your scripts with the new column names after the Sesam server update. See the >> table<< of column changes.

If you use the Sesam Nagios plugin you have to upgrade to the new version in the SEP download center.


Citrix XEN

Hot backup of Citrix XenServer guests.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

The Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) is supported with 2 new Task Types:

  • SharePoint Server - to store the Server components data,
  • SharePoint Sites - to store the site collections.

Where SharePoint Server back ups the SharePoint Server components data and SharePoint Sites back ups site collections with documents.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

To support the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and the backup of replicated Exchange Server 2010 databases (which may be stored in a clustered Exchange Server 2010 environment via Database Availability Groups (DAG)) the new Task Types 'Exchange Server 2010' and 'Exchange Server DAG' are available.

  • Exchange Server 2010 - to back up the databases which are mounted on the given server,
  • Exchange Server DAG - to back up the via DAG replicated Exchange Server 2010 databases.

With 'Exchange Server DAG' even the data from a remote Exchange Server 2010 can be backed up on a separate host which is a member of the DAG and which holds a replica of the databases.


The new task type 'Exchange Server 2010' is usable for Exchange Server 2007 as well. Therefore since version 4.0.2 the task type is renamed to 'Exchange Server' and the older one (supporting Exchange Server 2003) is renamed to 'Exchange Server 2003'!

Microsoft SQLServer 'all' Backup

In version 4.0 all databases of a Microsoft SQLServer Instance and even all databases in several instances of one Microsoft SQLServer host can be backed up with one task.

So instead of one separate task for every database now some (comma separated) or all databases (keyword 'all') can be configured in one task.

IBM DB2 for Windows x64

Now IBM DB2 is even supported on Windows x64 in addition to Windows x86.

Lotus Notes

  • Now Lotus Notes backup retrieves subdirectories on Linux
  • Support for Lotus Notes on Windows x64
  • Support for Lotus Notes DAOS (Domino Attachment and Object Service)
  • Support for Lotus Notes Partitioned Server


  • Backup type NetWare is renamed to NSS File System.
  • During sm_config_client Sesam client kit version is added to clients table. Newer SBCs are reporting Sesam version as log message so now the Sesam version is updated before the backup runs.
  • Backup Settings via task types - Backup type will be automatically adjusted to supported level COPY/FULL/DIFFERENTIAL/INCREMENTAL, e.g. DIFF > FULL (planned for 4.1!).
  • Selective restore of compressed DISK_HARD media now with seek (needs extended LIS file with compressed offsets (planned for 4.1!).
  • SMS Version 3.4R38: With correct last LIS line for NetWare File System (SIDF). Call setsockopt() for FTP Control Port to set KEEP_ALIVE if requested in stpd.ini with [STPD_Thread] KEEP_ALIVE=TRUE (Version >

Note: With Version v4.0.2.8 the Exchange Server Mailbox View Restore is not intended for Productive Environments

The QA for Exchange Server 2007/2010 automatic restore of user mailboxes, folders and email items was not fulfilled completely. Especially the configuration tasks for

  1. Registering Exchange Server PowerShell based programs to generate list of backed up mailbox items.
  2. Configuration for programs needed to check or create Recovery Databases (RDBs).
  3. Configuration program authorization to allow import of mailbox data from RDBs into original Exchange Server databases.

Therefore the functionality 'Mailbox, Mailbox Folder and Single Email Restore' is not intended for productive environments!
